In this edition of the newsletter, the focus is on the impact of otitis media with effusion and language development in children. As you will see from our guest authors, the controversy continues around this issue. What you will find, however, is some insight into considerations for assessment and management of children with or at risk for hearing loss associated with otitis media with effusion as well as for the next research questions that need to be asked.
Joanne Roberts and Judith Gravel provide a clear introduction to the issues and highlight several strategies practitioners, both audiologists and speech-language pathologists, might consider as they confront the issues surrounding otitis media with effusion and related hearing loss. Jack Paradise reviews the historical and current research related to otitis media in young children and associated developmental outcomes. He provides some early reports of a comprehensive study being completed in Pittsburgh and outlines the needs for continued research. In the last of the three articles offered in this content area, Susan Nittrouer provides some perspective on the ways in which chronic otitis media with effusion might have lasting effects on language as she examines issues of speech perception in the research being done at the Boys Town National Research Hospital.
